This Sunday at 5pm PT San Diego hosts Denver in a PRO Rugby match that will decide first place in the League. San Diego enters the match with a 4-1 record and 20 points, with their only loss to Denver earlier in the season. Denver has a 5-0 record and 23 points.
In their previous match, a stellar Denver defense stymied the potent San Diego offense and left San Diego with the win. Denver also has an offense that has been producing points, so the rematch should be an exciting one to watch.
San Diego has an explosive offensive that is tough to stop when it gets going. It hopes that it will be able to seize the momentum in front of the home crowd to gain the win.
Look for an intense match, one that has the viewers on the edge of their seats. Expect a close, but higher scoring match than the previous encounter.
The match is being streamed on prorugby.org and will be broadcast on ONE World Sports.
